The use of larger and more efficient mechanically induced draft cooling tower fans has given rise to the use of long single piece fan gearbox input shafts. This type of shaft replaces the maintenance nuisance of intermediate shaft bearings with potential thermal expansion problems. This paper discusses some of these problems and their circumvention.
